The Bible is also 100% correct because there are evidences  that the events mentioned in the Bible really happened. The Bible mentions nations of people, that when you go into a world history book, these nations are there. In the book of Daniel, it is quite clear of the empires that existed; the Babylonian empire, the Mede-Persian empire, the Grecian Empire, and the Roman empire.

  The Bible is 100% accurate as it unfolds world history. The scriptures tell of the reign of King Nebuchadnezzar that actually happened in history. My son has done a study of him as part of his world history class. He noticed on a timeline by Encarta that what the Bible says about this reign of King Nebuchadnezzar did in fact take place and that sure enough the other kingdoms did follow; the Medes & Persians, Grecian, & Roman.

 Here is a timeline that you can follow that shows these empires.

   Here is a commentary by Chuck Smith that even shows through the book of Daniel that these empires were coming on the scene long before they appeared on the scene. Daniel even predicted the Kingdom of God that will NEVER be destroyed.  
  

Below is the interpretation of the dream of King Nebuchadnezzar in Daniel:

 "Here we can see history that has been unfolded right before our eyes and the Bible spells all of it out for us “As for thee, O king, thy thoughts came into thine mind upon thy bed, what should come to pass hereafter: and he that reveals secrets is made known unto thee what should come to pass (Dan 2:29). Before Nebuchadnezzar had gone to sleep, he was wondering in his mind, "What's going to happen to the world? What does the future hold?" And so this dream pertains to the future. God is in this dream giving him history in advance, as He lays out the kingdoms that would rule over the earth. The first world-governing empire, the Babylonian Empire, the head of gold. But after thee there shall arise another kingdom that is inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which will bear rule over all the earth (Dan 2:39). Notice these are world-dominating empires bearing rule over all the earth. And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaks in pieces and subdues all things: and as iron that breaks all things, shall it break in pieces and bruise. And whereas you saw the feet and the toes, part of potters' clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdomshall be partly strong, and partly weak, or brittle. And whereas you saw iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men (Dan 2:40-43): That is, there would not be a monarchy but there would be more of a democracy kind of a thing, a confederacy of states, but not a strong dictatorship or monarchy as such. "You saw the iron mixed with the miry clay they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men." and they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay. And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. Forasmuch as you saw that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: the dream is certain, the interpretation is sure (Dan 2:43-45). So, this great image, the head of gold representing the Babylonian Empire, the first world-dominating empire, which was to be replaced by an inferior empire. The arms and chest of silver or the Medo-Persian Empire, which was to be replaced by the brass stomach or the Grecian Empire, which was to be supplanted by the legs of iron, the Roman Empire. But then he saw the feet of iron and clay with ten toes, weaker than just the iron because you have the mixture of iron and clay. Not a strong monarchy, but more of a confederacy. And yet, it is related to the Roman Empire because it is part iron. So because of this, and of course, the subsequent vision of Daniel in chapters 7 and 8, in which Daniel declares that the second empire will be the Medo-Persian and the third would be the Grecian. And, of course, we know from history that the fourth was the Roman Empire. Bible scholars for years have been looking for a confederacy of European nations to join together with treaties that would become and will become the final world-governing empire. Since the Roman Empire, there has not been a world-governing empire. It was, of course, Hitler's dream to become a world ruler. And he sought to establish a world-governing empire through the super race. But he never accomplished his dream. It is the goal of communism to develop a world-dominating empire. The communists will not fulfill their dreams. But Bible scholars, and I can show you books that were written back in the twenties, back in the thirties by Bible scholars, Dr. Talbot, Arnold Gabbling, William Newell, who all in their books predicted that there will arise in Europe a confederacy of ten nations who will link themselves together with treaties. And that this ten-nation federation in Europe will become the final world-dominating empire. Because the ten toes are part iron, the nations that become, or joined together, will be related to the Roman Empire, or nations that were involved in the Roman Empire. But because there is also the mixture of clay, so that you have a democracy among them, the nations having equal parts it won't be one nation ruling over them all, but the nations ruling together as a confederacy. So that we as Bible students have been watching Europe for the development of a ten nation European community. And, of course, at the beginning of this year, among the Bible scholars there was tremendous excitement as Greece signed the treaty and became officially the tenth nation of the European community. Now, the thing that is especially relevant and significant is verse 44 of chapter 2, where the Lord said, "And in the days of these kings," that is the ten kings when this ten nation European confederacy has been formed, "in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom which will never be destroyed." So that he does declare that the coming of Christ will take place during the time of the rule of these ten kings of the European community. The fact that the European community has been formed is extremely significant from a biblical standpoint. Now there are many other passages that relate to this in the scriptures. The ruler that will ultimately arise from this ten-nation European confederacy. The power that will be given to him and his rule over the earth as is described in other passages throughout the Bible. As well as Daniel gives us quite a bit of insight towards the latter part of the book of Daniel concerning this man of sin that is going to arise. But to me, the really exciting thing is that we, in seeing the formation of the European community, could very well be seeing exactly what Daniel was prophesying here as we see the Roman Empire, in a sense, being revived in the European community. And we see its growing strength, especially in economy. And we see its industrial might as it is being developed. The European community has a potential GMP that is double that of the United States. And it is certainly one of the most powerful forces in the world today as far as economic and industrial. It is not yet a military force. That will come later, but I'm always excited to realize that it's during the time of the ten kings that the God of heaven shall set up a kingdom which will never be destroyed. The coming of Christ and the kingdom of Christ upon the earth. The stone, not cut with hands, that grows into a mountain that cover the earth. And to realize that we are coming to those days. We see, it's just almost incredible that we see the ten-nation European community being formed. Now, they say, "But Spain and Portugal want to come in." That is correct, then there'll be twelve. Well, there will be ten. Maybe Greece will drop out or maybe the Lord will come before Spain and Portugal can get in. But there will be ten.”.

**Here is also another commentary by a Bible teacher named Les Feldick on the book of Daniel.

 The Bible is 100% correct because when you have seen where events were predicted in the Bible & were foretold, they come to pass. The greatest prediction that was foretold of all was showing us the arrival of the Messiah. As the Bible unfolds in this tremendous love story for us, God had already the plan of redeemption in force. Actually, it was already from the foundation of the world that Jesus would come:
  

1 Peter 1: 18-21,"Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God."

  Tomorrow, we will talk about those places in the Bible, in its accuracy foretelling the coming of Jesus. We will not start in the New Testament, but we will travel back in the Old Testament to see Jesus!

    Jesus, Himself, testifies of himself. When he met the men after his resurrection on the road to Emmaus in Luke 24. They did not know who He was at that point. Jesus was talking with them and reminded them that “Ought Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into His glory.” And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, He expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning Himself.

   Just remember that all events will take place as it came to pass as the New Testament discloses: Luke 2:1, "And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all of the world should be taxed.

 This is just setting the stage for the most important event of all.

 See you tomorrow! God willing!
